* Since 2008 the indicators are not comparable with the data of previous years. The number of unemployed has been calculated by the Armstat since 2008 based on the ILO standard definition used by EU countries. The later partially differs from the methodology used in 2001-2007, which is based on the expanded definition of unemployment, recommended by the ILO for using in transition countries (by opinion of country).

** The methodology of labour market statistics was revised since January 2018 within the framework of Labour Force Survey conducted in households. The basis of the revision are concepts of «Resolution concerning statistics of work, employment and labour underutilization» adopted by the 19th International Conference of Labor Statisticians (19th ICLS) in October 2013.
